Last week, we shared the opinion of one of our ambassadors on the ongoing ASUU strike with you. Today is the 70th day of the nationwide strike and students are feeling more agitated with every passing day.

Below is another entry by an ambassador on her opinion about the strike. Read, share and comment your thoughts.

Hi, everyone!

My name is Sabriya Hamza-Omonori, a final year student at the
University of Abuja. The present Ongoing ASUU strike hasn’t been a
pleasant experience for me. And personally, I feel like we the students
are the main victims of the strike, we are the ones who have to spend
months at home while our “so-called” Government and the ASUU deliberate
who gets what.

Do you even know the funny part? It’s not like the so
called ASUU who are supposedly fighting for the students would use the
funds they are collecting for the right purpose. After everything, I
would still go and be having lectures in one small class room that is
supposed to contain about 70 students but about 324 students are
squeezing themselves inside.

There’s no ventilation cause the windows meant for air are being used as spare chairs. How do you learn in such environment  when you can barely breathe? To top it all off, my final year project topic hasn’t even been approved and nothing can happen till
school resumes.

Like, it’s time we students start fighting our battles cause both the government and ASUU aren’t fighting for us. We are the collateral damages in their battle.

Sabriya Hamza-Omonori

StudentHub NG Ambassador,

University of Abuja.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something
    like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or
    something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit,
    but other than that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read.
    I’ll certainly be back. plenty of fish natalielise

    Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same
    comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    I have been surfing online greater than three hours nowadays, but I
    by no means found any interesting article like yours.
    It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my view, if all
    site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net might be much more useful than ever before.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make
    your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
